City schemes supporting research and enterprise

The University continues its investment in its research community through a number of funding schemes. It supports outstanding researchers at different stages of their career, from doctoral students and early career researchers, through to more established academics.

University Doctoral Studentships are fully-funded, three-year awards to outstanding PhD candidates.

The Research Pump Priming Fund supports early career researchers in the development of proposals with the aim of attracting further funding from external sources in areas of strategic importance to the University.

University Research Fellowships are full-time academic positions for early career researchers who are able to demonstrate strong research potential through publication. The Fellowships are advertised periodically with University funding provided for two years.

The Annual Staff Research Prizes recognise and reward exceptional research-related achievement in support of University and School strategic aims by a member of staff, or a team of staff.

The London City Incubator offers incubation facilities and support to staff and students to accelerate the launch of their innovative products and services into the market.

The Enterprise Education scheme supports the fast-growing culture of enterprise and innovation at City. Staff from across the University can benefit from taking part in a range of extra-curricular enterprise programmes and activities.

Staff are invited to speak to the Short Courses team if you would like any assistance with organising courses for external clients. City staff can also benefit from enrolling on one of over 100 short courses run by the Enterprise Office and enjoy a 50 per cent discount for many popular programmes.
